Adventurers

Adventurers will be providing blended learning so that any child who finds themselves isolating at home can access the bulk of what we will be covering at school!  If you're at home, try to complete the 4 tasks for each day. All the resources you need will be available below the planner (although some may not be uploaded until nearer the day) and videos can be found in the adventurers sections of the video resource centre. If you have any problems, please email me on stephaniet@eastmeonprimary.co.uk.  Keep any work you have done to bring back to school with you and we can stick it into your books. We can't wait to see you back at school soon!!

The Great Fire of East Meon Primary!!!

Still image for this video
There was great excitement today as the Adventurers finally got to enjoy their own Great Fire of London when we ignited our model houses to observe how quickly the fire could spread.
Last half term we practised dance movements that represented fire. We flickered like a flame, created fire sparks with our hands and arms, fireballs whilst travelling and some of us even added gunpowder explosions for the houses that were destroyed in order to try and stop the fire spreading. Mrs Newman was the wind 'blowing' the flames in our direction until the fire slowly spread across the whole of London! (Our class) This week we completed our dance and added red, orange and yellow tissue paper for our flames.

Our Stop Go Animations

Adventurers classroom became a temporary film studio today as the children had a go at creating their own stop go animations based on the Great Fire of London. Check out our class movie of the edited highlights above!!

There was much excitement today as the last of the Year 2's lockdown learning gems were finally counted out and added to the jars! Year 1's will be adding theirs next week!

October 14th 2020

This week, Adventurers have been thinking about how London has changed since the time of the Great Fire. They discussed how people from other countries have travelled to live in our country. They enacted this on the playground by holding flags to represent different countries and they then travelled to join the children in the middle to create a wonderful mixture of cultures and backgrounds.

On Thursday 8th October the Adventurers each formed their own individual Harvest loaves. We thought about the reasons the loaves were shaped as a wheatsheaf whilst we moulded them. The Adventurers were able to describe that the Harvest loaf is shaped as a wheatsheaf to thank God for the food he has provided in our world and also to thank Farmers for the Harvest. We discussed the journey of bread from the field to our shops and really enjoyed talking about our favourite types of bread and their fillings! Yum!

Our Harvest loaves were a messy job but we worked hard to separate our dough into 10 equal sized balls, then roll the balls into sausages before twisting some around each other to make it look like a wheatsheaf. Well done Adventurers! 

On Tuesday 29th September, Adventurers walked through East Meon, looking for evidence of Tudor architecture. They enjoyed spotting the features that they would have seen on buildings in London during the Great Fire. We then went back to school and the children sketched their own versions of Tudor houses, which we will use as a basis for our sculpture work later in the week. Ask your child if they can point out the Tudor house in the village on their way home!
